    The Red Sox are in the midst of a ten game losing streak. What were the odds that Boston would drop ten in a row?



    The Boston Red Sox have lost ten straight for the first time since 2001. The defending World Series champions were favorites in seven of those games. What were the odds that the Red Sox would lose ten games in a row?

    According to our simulations, the Red Sox only had a 0.064 percent chance or approximately 1,563 to 1 odds of losing their last ten games.

    How has the losing streak impacted the Red Sox' season?

    Statistics Before Streak After Streak
    Division Standings 0.5 game out of 1st 8 games out of 1st
    World Series Odds 12/1 25/1
    Proj. Record 85-77 76-86
    Proj. Finish 1st AL East Last AL East

    The Red Sox' ten game losing streak is the second-longest by a reigning World Series champion in the last twenty years. The longest streak belongs to the Marlins in 1998 when the team lost eleven games in a row twice in the same season.

    The team still has a long way to go to break the franchise record of twenty straight losses, which was set in 1906 when the Red Sox were called the Boston Americans.

    Will the streak extend to eleven losses? Using the Predictalator, Boston will be an underdog in Monday's game against Atlanta.
